Anticipating questions in advance:

1) the only info given was name, type of service, # days served, miles traveled, amt. of fee paid by check

2) there's no way for the site coordinator to find out the name of the case(s) individuals served on, date of case, where they resided, if common names refer to one individual vs. another of same name, etc.

3) spellings in this official document are as given, so changes won't be made if spelling conflicts with what you have

4) no authoritative idea why women aren't listed

5) the point of putting this on line is that these men were alive and county residents in 1931, and an obit should be sought during or after 1931

We've been fortunate in acquiring more public domain material from the early 20th century, giving temporal balance to our offerings and better assisting current/recent area residents in their genealogical quest. This is an exceptionally good list as:

1) it shows that a considerable number of descendants of the earliest settlers were still in the area as recently as 70 years ago, as well as names residents whose forebears settled Montgomery County after the mid-19th century.

2) the 1930 census hasn't been released yet and this list at least establishes county of residence for the year 1931.

3) of importance to descendants of recent immigrants - all of the listed were eligible to serve on jury duty and so were full citizens of the U.S. at this time.

4) for all persons listed, an obit should be sought during or after 1931.

For further information about persons listed, visit or order a search from the Montgomery County Department of History and Archives.
